"The fit and finish work is as clean as it comes in a hand-built guitar; and the voice has a perfect blend of modern clarity and dry, vintage-Martin boomy power, with volume to spare. Great responsiveness, and a wonderful, full-yet-not-obtrusive neck profile. If you're on the hunt for a hand-made dreadnought that will rival the tops of what's being done on the boutique scale, Matt's guitars are some of the most exciting being produced right now."

The Music Emporium

"This minimally-decorated mahogany dread is a veritable cannon, with gobs of volume and a huge, wide-open tone that will only get sweeter with play time. Much like a classic pre-war, it is lightly built but powerfully voiced...Matt has made an impressive leap in a short period of time with his vintage-style instruments appointed and voiced for the modern player."

-The Music Emporium

 

"My good friend Matt Arcara is making some really fine instruments, and I'm proud to say that I get to play one. His MGA guitars pay tribute to the spirit and quality craftsmanship of the much sought-after classic dreadnoughts, yet bear a distinctly modern sensibility and vision. Matt did a great job of inquiring about and understanding the sounds I was looking for while building my guitar, plus -being a great guitarist himself- he has an acute sense of what is important from a player's perspective. MGA guitars certainly reflect Matt's passion and dedication to the craft of guitar building"

-Grant Gordy, Guitarist with David Grisman
